"The Extremely Brilliant Lamp" ( "Shin tu gsal ba'I sgorn me") is Tsong Khapa's most important commentary on the perfection stage practices of the "Esoteric Community," the Tantra he considered fundamental for the practice of the "Father Tantra" class of Unexcelled Yoga Tantras. It draws heavily on N?g?rjuna's "Five Stages" and ?ryadeva's "Lamp that Intergrates the Practices," as well as a vast range of perfection stage works included in the Tibetan Kangyur and Tengyur collections. It is an important work for both scholars and practitioners.
